Chef Lemaire is an award winning chef out of South Florida. He is the Co-owner and Executive Chef of Sensory Delights, LLC, and Arome Catering, both full service catering companies operating in South Florida and Haiti respectively. He is a native of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where he first discovered his interest in cooking. Later on, he developed an increasing passion for food and foodservice which led him to attend the culinary program at the acclaimed Johnson & Wales University.
